Local value of patient data - the Dorset experience
With the launch of the IBD Registry web tool last month, we're all set for every IBD team in the UK to join in, and to start to benefit from collecting useful local data to help deliver better patient care and support service development. Here Pearl Avery describes the approach she took to entering data on the PMS, involving patients in the process and the value of the information collected in the first ten months. This included being able to achieve CCG funding for the helpline for the first time in 20 years.

Transition focus on biologics
To deliver local value to teams and patients, the steering group has proposed reporting on a set of 6 key performance indicators on biologics in 2016-17, with the aim of building a UK-wide register of all people receiving biological therapies for IBD by the end of 2017. The combined UK data will become a unique resource for real-world clinical effectiveness and health economic studies in IBD care.

IBD audit transition to IBD Registry
Friday, 01 July 2016 09:21
At the BSG annual meeting in Liverpool last week outgoing president Ian Forgacs praised the leaders of IBD Registry and called for all IBD teams in the UK to participate in the new programme for data capture and quality improvement using the IBD Registry.
This new programme is still on the quality accounts list and the national clinical audit and patient outcomes programme (NCAPOP) in England. The aim for the transition year is to report on 6 quality indicators for patients newly started on a biological therapy. This focus will enable the UK IBD clinical community to build the largest biologics registry in the world.
